Hey, we had a great time, quietly, climbing up the bowl with no one around and looking out to the Hollywood sign over the bowl (go up to about half way up the back part). Peaceful and lovely to read all the historical items on the sides of the walls with pictures of how it used to be seventy plus... More

This is a famous overlook that has a pretty good view of the Hollywood sign. We were really happy to see it, but the parking lot could get quite busy as it had less than 10 spots. The slightly longer spots were usually taken up by tour buses and created havoc on people trying to enter and exit. Views were... More

Great spot for photographs of the city and for views of the Hollywood Bowl itself. Some great houses to see in the locality too.

Took a trolley to see this landmark! The guide took us up to the seats and we took pics with the stage as a backdrop. So many legends have graced this stage - it was surreal!

You don't need a tour bus. Hike, take a bike or taxi up Mulholland Drive to the Jerome C. Daniel Overlook over the Hollywood Bowl.

A must visit spot for a night view of the LA area. It was absolutely beautiful! Make the visit! The travel to get to the overlook is an attraction in itself.

We went there on Easter, it had a great view to see around and Hollywood sign. It was a sunny day and I Enjoyed it. There were other people gathering for the Easter and there was music and so on, which made a memorable day.
